Land Rover has revealed the 2016 model Evoque. The compact SUV gets a range of new design features and technologies.
Exterior styling updates include a new front bumper, two new grille designs, all-LED headlamps and three new alloy wheel designs.
Interior changes include new seats and door casings, a new infotainment system, accessed via an eight-inch touchscreen, and the introduction of new colour and materials.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director and chief creative officer said: “The Range Rover Evoque first established and then dominated the luxury compact SUV sector generating worldwide acclaim and sales success. Our challenge has been to evolve the Evoque design without diluting its distinctive character.”
Land Rover’s new diesel engine also debuts. The new EU6-compliant four-cylinder Ingenium unit, which is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, is claimed to provide up to 178 bhp, fuel economy of up to 68 mpg and CO2 emissions of 109 g/km. All of which will make the Evoque the most efficient Land Rover ever produced.
The new Evoque will also be offered with Land Rover’s existing 237 bhp Si4 petrol engine. Si4 derivatives can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 7.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 135 mph, and return fuel economy of 36 mpg and CO2 emissions of 181 g/km.
More than 400,000 Evoques have been produced globally since its introduction in 2011 making it the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time. Last year, 2014, marked the Evoque’s most successful year to date, with 125,364 global sales.
